    It was necessary in order to maintain their hold on the title "Crappiest Website Ever".

    The owner of BD has been here and he thinks his website design is great. :rolleyes:

    Yep. You can crank that resistance knob and have sparks flying off that wheel if you want. Or, you can sit off to the side and barely toodle along while you gossip with your friend.

    "60 Minutes" did a show about him. He'd get off work, get on his bike, and go ride a 100 miles. Rode his bike pretty much all the time. Awesome!

    It would be nice if the photographs were in focus, too.

    From what I saw, they looked fine. Put some rim tape, tubes and tires and go ride.

    My WAG is that the Schwalbes were just a big big in diameter while your rims are just a bit small in diameter. Many tires will work just fine with your rims, but not these Schwalbes.

    If you have an older bicycle, Acorn saddle bags look and work very nicely and don't cost as much as a Carradice or Berthould. I got a roll for my wife's bike and a tubular bag for my Pinarello. ...

    I really like my 5.2 Domane and the Bontrager Race wheels are really nice for stock wheels.

    I don't think you'd go wrong with either of these bikes; test ride them some more, see what happens.

    I test rode a couple of track bikes but the geometry was too aggressive for me.

    So count me as one of the guys that don't ride vintage track bikes.

    I do own some vintage road bikes, however.

    I personally couldn't ride in that position for very long; it's just not comfortable. At my age, I'm all about comfort, coolness be damned.

    I'd only be concerned if the chain comes off the cog. It should loosen up with more riding.
